I'm planning to be in Beijing next week. I've been invited to give a talk at the International Symposium on Memory Management 2012. It's colocated with PLDI, ECOOP and various workshops --- a key destination for my former colleagues in computer science research --- so I'm looking forward to hanging out with a lot of old friends and a few other Mozillians. Hopefully I'll learn something about what's going on in the field, too. Although I'll probably be stuck in the hotel most of the time, I will have some time to see a bit of Beijing and I'm very much looking forward to that as well.
I should have some connectivity but the onslaught of computer scientists is expected to crush local Internet service, so I don't expect much!
